Alice Arm Celebrates
Armistice Day With
Banquet & Dance
The sixth anniversary of Armistice Day was. celebrated in Alice
Arm by both the veterans of the
late war and the townspeople.
The veterans held a banquet at
the Alice Arm Hotel, which commenced at H.30 p.m. It concluded
at 9.30, and from then until the
hour of 2, the celebration was general. A dance being hold directly
after tlie banquet.
A large number of veterans
attended the banquet, which was
held iii the spacious dining room
of the Hotel. A one minute silence
was held by those present, in memory of their departed comrades,
who fought the good light, and
died not in vain.
Armistice-Day just means to the
average citizen that the war closed
on that date, but to the boys in
khaki, who were on the bloodstained fields of France, fighting and
floundering in mud, and suffering a
thousand horrors, it is the one red
letter day of their lives. The
Armistice meant an end to all
their sufferings, and return to home
and friends whom they had not
seen for years.
The boys at the banquet were in a
reminiscent mood and many were
the tales of life in the trenches,
** that went the rounds. The tales
of horror and of humour were told,
of training camps and trench war-
fare," aha! especially the "big push1'
that finished the war.
It was with an air of regret that
the party broke up, in order to
make arrangements for the dance
to follow.
The dance commenced shortly
before 10 o'clock, it wasgiven by the
veterans, and everyone was invited.
A large number of townfolk were
present and an enjoyable time was
spent until 2 o'clock.
Community singing of camp
songs were given by the veterans
at intervals during the dance, and
were greatly appreciated. Mr.
J. Trinder presided at the piano.
Mr. Lough also sang a solo.
The orchestra was composed of
Mrs. Laidlaw, saxophone; Messrs.
E. F. McGinnis, piano; C. Hutchinson, clarinet; Lome Falconer,
violin. They were greatly aplaud-
ed througout the evening.
Mr. G. W. Bruggy filled the bill
as Master of Ceremonies, in his
usual able manner, and kept the
floor busy throughout the evening.
Mr. J. Lough, of the Club Cafe,
was the chef in charge of the
banquet, and also the refreshments
for the dance. He has a reputa-
' tion of being a past master at, the
business, and he certainly won new
laurels on Tuesday.
The Armistice Day Memorial
Services were held in the Elks'
Hall on Sunday, when* a large
congregation was present. The
Service was very impressive, and
excellent addresses were given by
Bev. J. B. Gibson and Rev J. Herd-
Mrs. R. Lamborn very beautifully rendered several solos, and
Mr." F. Brown recited "In Flanders' Fields'' in a very impressive
The offertory taken at the
Service, which amounted to $36.00,
was sent to St. Dunstan's Home
for the blind, where 2000 men who
have lost their sight, because of
war services are being cared for.
A large amount of Anyox news
failed to reach the Herald office
this week.

This was followed by a banquet in
the Mine Hall on Tuesday evening. On Tuesday, pqppies were
sold throughout the day by the
The dance was one of tho biggest affairs seen in Anyox for some
time. A large number of people
were present, and enjoyed themselves every minute of the evening.
The hall was beautifully decorated with red, white and blue
streamers, aiid banners, while
shields were hung around the
walls bearing the names of the
battles in which Canada took part.
There were two dugouts, which
were an exact duplicate of those
used during the war. The "Canteen" was well attended throughout the evening. Ice cream,
lemonade and hot dogs being in
great demand. A change, from
the ordinary refreshments was
the serving of these hot dogs, and
they were piping hot.
Another novel feature introduced, was that instead of a moon
light waltz, a searchlight dance
was held, which was much enjoyed.
Piper Archie Dewar gave selections on the pipes, while a large
number indulged in the Highland
Schottische and Quadrille.

capable manner.
Songs, speeches and toasts were
the order of the evening, and wartime tales went the rounds. The

through freezing of water pipes,
logging has been carried on uninterruptedly at the logging camp of
Eric Carlson, and will continue
until the heavy snow makes it impossible to operate,
The stand of timber near the
camp of the Granby Co. is now being fallen. The railroad has been
extended to it, aud the whole stand,
comprising about one and a
quarter million feet will be put into
the water this fall. From 80,000
to 90,000 feet per day is now being put into the water.
Owing to the cold weather
freezing the lake oaused by the

suspended. Now that the weather
has turned warmer, this work will
be resumed.

All records were broken, regarding early skating at Alice Arm,
when the Skating Rink was
thrown open to the public on

Publicity For Mining
Publicity, and lots of it is what
wields the magic wand of success.
This fact is well known by every
successful business man. Political
parties are well aware of the influence persistent publicity has on
the masses, and prominent figures
in political life would sink rapidly to
oblivion if. publicity of their doings
was withdrawn. Publicity for a
town or district is good. It is
good for the province and also the
Dominion. The government of
the province is a firm believer in
publicity and of the Department of
Mines is this especially true.
There is hardly a mineral exhibition now held in the world but
what British Columbia is well
represented. Mining investors
throughout the world are becoming educated in the mineral wealth
of the province, and the advertising campaign now being carried
on by ore displays is bearing fruit.
Persistency, not spasmodic advertising is what gets results, and this
policy is being followed by the department of mines.
Cut The Taxes
While the mineral wealth of
the province is high, it has, especially of late, been said by several
prominent mining men, that the
taxes are also high, in fact too high
for any company to undertake a
really large programme of development work, unless values are exceptionally high. As this does not
very often occur, the result is that
mining companies are not developing on a large v scale, or building
large reduction plants.1 It is well
known that the least taxed country
is the most prosperous. Light
taxes mean that anyone who
possesses some spare cash is going
to invest, whether it is in a humble
little home, a factory or mine.
New mines means more work.
More work spells more people, and
as these new people must live, it
means prosperity for the farmer,
the builder, and everyone else
Mining is one of the basic industries of the province, and the
taxes on it should be cut down to
the lowest possible point.
The Herald job printing department is always anxious to cater to
your wishes. Our prices are right
and our work is right.
The following definitions of mining terms were published in the
Valdez Prospector 20 years ago,
having been handed to the editor
of that paper by an old prospector.
The definitions are as good today
as when published and apply fully
as well—or better:
A prospector—A man who lias a
hole in the ground and is the big-
est liar in town.
A proposition man—One who
wears lace boots and corduroy
clothes and never pays a board bill.
A mining expert—A man who
can talk about formations, ramifications, statilications; dykes, zones,
dips, spurs, angles telegites, ozites,
sedimites and all the ites tid tites;
can see a mile into mother earth
and invariably condemns the country.
An expert miner—A fellow who
loafs around town looking for a
job as superintendent of a property, but would be foreman if he
can't be superintendent; one who
has worked in the Treadwell in '90"|
and has been idle ever since.
A "98er"—A man who came to
Alaska in the fall of '97 or spring
of'98 and knows .where there are
diggings that will pay $50 to the
pan and is going back there just
as soon as spring comes..
A mining promoter—A man who
has unlimited capital behind him,
but none in front of him; his watch
is in soak.
An amalgamator—A man who
wears long finger nails, draws $5 a.
shift and deposits $10 in the bank
every day; if the ore is low grade,
the more in proportion.
An assayer—A man who charges
you $1.50 for throwing your sample out of the back door, and writing a certificate.
A mining engineer—One who
makes funny' figures on blazed
stumps and charges a big price.
A knocker—One who runs down
the country so as to keep others
out until he can get what properties he wants.—Strollers Weekly.

Prince of Wales' "Little Grey  Home  in  the West
A fter having enjoyed about as much privacy as
the proverbial goldfish during the international
polo games near New York, the Prince of Wales retired to the quiet and seclusion of his Canadian "Little Grey Home in the West," 25 miles from High
River, Alberta, a station on the Canadian Pacific, to
rest for a few days, recreate and work far from curious crowds, reporters, still photographers and
"movie" men. It is very pleasant, no doubt, to be
the most popular young man in the world, but about
once a year the rolling hills and rich prairie land of
his "E. P. Ranch" call the Prince of Wales, Baron
Renfrew or "Davy Windsor," as they refer to H.R.H.
in Alberta, back to the land.
the prince Is a real farmer and rancher, and is
honestly endeavoring to improve the breed of horses,
sheep and cattle in Western Canada. His pure-bred,
imported animals and their offspring have won many
prizes in competition at live stock shows in Western
Canada, not because they were from the royal ranch,
bat because they were the very best exhibited. Since
ha bought his 4,100 acre ranch in Alberta in 1919,
the prince has been sending to it the best stock he
could secure in Great Britain, and every year he sells
at auction the surplus animals for the benefit of live
stock breeders in the western provinces. The Earl of
Minto, who has a big ranch near-by, does the same
thing. Also, King George loans the prince some of
his best animals for the stud.
"He's a neighborly kid," said one of the members
of the Alberta Shorthorn Breeders' Association.
"When he comes out here we don't chase him as they
do in other places. We just let him ride, and next
thing you know he has all of us neighbors in as his
guests, and meets us just as a neighbor. He wants
to meet all the ranchers who are his neighbors, and
there isn't a thing about ranching he doesn't want to
know. His ranch is no fad. He is running it for
the benefit of Canada first, and second for the purpose of making the "E. P. Ranch" a business venture,
just as any level-headed man would do. When he is
on the ranch he wears a 'ten gallon hat,' the same
as all of the cowboys, and he does his work daily like
any other ranch hand. 'Regular feller.' that's what
we call him, 'regular feller.'"

Mining Throughout
The Dominion
Fully   Half   Billion Dollars
Invested Says Deputy
That about $500,000,000 is invested in mining in Canada was
stated by Dr. Charles Camsell,
deputy minister of tlie federal
department of mines in addressing
the Vanoouver branch of the
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy, recently.
Of that capital about 50 per cent
was Canadian, 35 per cent American, 13 per cent British, and 3 per
cent foreign. On a recent trip to
the British Isles he had found a
considerable lack of knowledge of
Canada's mineral resources, but
he expected that, with increased
knowledge of these resources a
greater amount of British capital
would be invested.
The speaker expressed the opinion that the the mining industry in
Canada was in a very healthy condition. The production of coal
in Nova Scotia and Alberta this
year was considerably below that
of last year, but there has been an
increase in the production of
metals. The recent installation of
a central heating plant in Winnipeg would, he believed, have an
important bearing on the coal min
ing situation on the prairies.
It was expeoted that the export
of British coal to eastern Canada
this year would total about 400,000
tons. In shipping coal to eastern
Canada tho British operators had
a distinct advantage over those in
the United States in the matter of
freight rates. The rate per ton
froiir British points to Montreal
was 7s (id, as compared with about
$4,50 ft'0111 Scran ton to Montreal.
The British operators were not
competing with those in the maritime provinces because the former
shipped domestic coal while the
latter supplied steam coal.
Chateau Frontenac Team Leader's Long Journey
Canada Ships Most Wheat
To Great Britain
The United States is no longer
the chief exporter of wheat to the
United Kingdom. The largest
supplies of this grain to the British
Isles this month were from Canada,
with the United States second and
Argentina a close third. It is only
in barley and oats that the United
States has retained its hold on
British imports.

A breath from the freezing winds of
the Canadian Arctic, with something of its loneliness, its savagery,
its call 'upon the elemental qualities
of courage and endurance and a dash
of the romance of the long trails are
embodied in Mountie, veteran hero
of the wilderness and new leader of
the Chateau Frontenac dog-team at
Mountie is a husky, in other words,
part wolf and his wolf strain shows
itself in his handsome head, with its
sharp ears and nose, its steel-hard,
flaming eyes, its gleaming fangs and
its great ruff of fur. He is a dark grey
giant, almost one hundred weight of
muscle, bone and sinew, ferocity,
grim determination and unwavering
fidelity. He was born way up within
the Arctic Circle, at Lac-du-firochet,
bought in 1919, when very young, by
Sergeant Grennan of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and trained by
him. He put in nearly five years as a
member of that famous force, running
patrols on His Majesty's Service
with the red-coated heroes of the
The journey from Le Pas, in
Northern Manitoba, where he was
purchased, to Quebec, a distance of
well over two thousand miles, was an
exciting and extraordinary experience
for Mountie. He spent Christmas
Day at Winnipeg, where the kind-
hearted officials of the. Canadian
Pacific offered him, seasonal fare,
which he did not like much, except as
a dessert following a meal of his accustomed fish and biscuits. He made
friends with the baggage men who
were more than sorry to part with
him.  At Montreal, he had a day's
rest and there adjusted himself comparatively easily to the strange turmoil of the great city. His driver,
Arthur Beauvais, an Indian from
Caughnawaga, took him for a short
stroll through the streets, where he
created a tremendous sensation. And
no wonder, for Beauvais says he is
without exception the finest husky he
has ever seen, while, the Mounted
Police report that he has always bee:
greatly admired wherever he has
been, both for his appearance and
his capacities.
Now he is at the. Chateau Frontenac, working comparatively easily
at giving visitors a ride and is one of
the big attractions of winter-time
Quebec and will no doubt shine
brilliantly at the forthcoming carnival
there. P

(3) Showing the progress made in the building of bridges and lakes with the Malaya Pavilion In the background.
Showing the Canadian Pavilion, at Wembly, under
course of construction. As portions of the Canadian
space allotment have been given over to the two great
railway systems, the building which will house the
Government- exhibits will be somewhat smaller than
those of other Dominions, but a great deal of time and
money has been spent on its design and decoration, with
the result that it promises to be the gem of the British
Empire Exhibition. The photograph shows the progress
made up to the end of December.
Inset is shown the entrance to the Canadian Pacific
pavilion.   This building is grouped with the Canadian
Government pavilion with which it has been designed to i
y nrmonize.   A massive simple entrance, two Stories high, I
deeply recessed with painted and coffered ceiling, richly
colored doors and grilles of Canadian wood, approached
by a broad flight of steps flanked on either side by a
bronze moose and buffalo, is the centre of a facade enriched with decorated panels and columns. The strong
color scheme 'of this entrance is emphasized at night by a
unique'lighting effect.
A visitor to the Canadian buildings will find displayed to
good advantage examples of all Canadian natural and
manufactured products, and agricultural exhibits which i
cannot but impress him with the magnitude of the resources of this Dominion and the vast opportunities-
which await the immigrant and settler.
According to a statement recently

year was 18,500,000 pounds, or
2,000,000 pounds more than in 1922,
according to reports presented at the
annual meeting of the Alberta
Dairymen's Association. It was not
so long ago that Alberta was using
butter imported fro"*. New Zealand.
The year 1923 was a favorable
one in the building and construction activities of Canada, and returns show an advance of about 10
per cent In 1922 the total expenditures in this regard were $315,000,-
000, and in 1923 $3411.000,000, an
increase of $30,000^0°
Exports of pnlpwood ftom Canada
for the year 1923 amounted to 1,-
384,230 cords, compared \Jjth 1,011,-
332 for 1922, an incrsjae of 372,898

Tnt num'ber of big industrial undertakings projected for immediat*
